Wee Scoops

Measure for Measure

Sanstorm’s Advent 22

Behind door twenty-two, in their droves: over-tired children.

They’ve trekked to Bethlehem and back on the back of a donkey, peered over the manger to see the baby, been a star, an angel, a shepherd, a wise man or an ox. They’ve been to a party, seen Santa, made lists and started wishing. They’ve opened advent calendar doors, eaten chocolate and seen fewer and fewer chocolates to go. They’ve seen snow fall; they’ve visited friends; they’ve received cards; they’ve watched festive movies.

And they are tired.

To top it all, their parents have gone into winter lockdown, curling up with a good book and letting everything coagulate around them, choking the flow of family life,  leaving the children open to: crying for no apparent reason, vomitting, grumpiness and the propensity to talk more loudly than usual.

Oh well.

Not long to go now.

  1. That feels just about right for this time of the season. As you said, it won’t be long now.
